Winner and a Request

The lucky winner of the Pretty Pretty Baby is Mehnaz Kapadia of http://chefnaaz.blogspot.com/ Congrats!!! Please email me at keepersphoto{at}gmail{dot}com  You have 48hrs to respond or a new winner will be chosen.

On a sad note, my Grammie is extremely sick. She had breast cancer, a mastectomy, and lung cancer and went into remisson. She, for the past year, has been vomiting blood. They know now that it is coming from a tear in her esophagus. There is nothing they can do to repair that because she wouldnt make it through surgery. She also has a blood clot in her upper arm. They cant give her a blood thinner because she is bleeding from the tear. She is refusing to have a filter put in. She was taken to the hospital on Sunday because she was having some heart problems. The doctors have came in and said there is nothing left to do. They think her cancer is back full force and possibly a clot in her lung. My grandmother has fought a long hard fight but she is so ready to go. She said she is done here. On Monday everyone was in the room with her and she said her goodbyes and asked us to take care of my Papa and for him not to cry.  All her family is now here with her. Her son had to come in from Michigan and he arrived yesterday morning. Hospice is now involved and they are in the process of getting her home today. That is where she wants to be. The doctors and hospice say she has days left, a week max. She hasnt eating or drank anything in 6 days. They just are keeping her comfortable. My grammie is the strongest woman I know. I want to be just like her. I want my daughter to be like her. I ask that you pray, if you pray, or just think about my family this week. I am extremely close with her. I have never lost anyone close before. This is going to be a hard week for me and my mom. I will leave you with this picture taken last summer. :)
